the republicans agree with the president? well, that about turned speaker john boehner's blood into a red river valley of rage. >> i told tom earlier in our conference meeting that i disagreed with him. you're not going to grow the economy if you raise tax rates on the top -- on the top two rates. it will hurt small businesses. will hurt our economy. >> taxing the rich hurts small business, yes, the very familiar offerings of one mitt romney. losing presidential candidate. who will be enjoying a free government lunch tomorrow at the white house at the invitation of the president. not sure what will be on the menu, but many are betting on a generous serving of crow with a beet salad. let's go to our panel, with him y william cohen, and here in new york is msnbc political analyst jonathan alter, also a columnist for the "bloomberg view." the president is pressing his case hard for a deal on middle class tax relief. secretary geithner will head to the hill. is john boehner now facing the rising tide against his yacht owners and the like? >> i think he is. a 60-37 margin on supporting raising taxes
, at&t. you see the signs here, just to name a few. on the republican side, house speaker john boehner says the gop has done its part and now it is time for the democrats to show their cards on spending cuts. >> we all know that we have had this spending crisis coming at us like a freight train. and it has to be dealt with. and in order to try to come to an agreement, republicans are willing to put revenue on the table, but it is time for the president and democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our country has. >> president obama and speaker boehner's last face to face meeting on the fiscal cliff was 12 days ago. though apparently they did talk over the phone this weekend. if the president and congress do not cut a deal, let me repeat myself here, massive tax hikes and spending cuts automatically kick in the first of next year. joining me now from washington is representative marcia blackbird, a house republican, represents the seventh district of tennessee which covers some of the suburb s between nashvile and memphis. nice to see you. thanks for coming on today. >>
reid, mitch mcconnell, john boehner, nancy pelosi will be serious. going over the cliff doesn't make any sense. >> we all remember the t.a.r.p. vote that you reference. that really didn't come to a resolution until the markets -- i would argue -- scared washington. i wonder how important you think that is this time? do stocks need to fall before the two sides really get committed at the table? >> that is a terrific question. that's the main question. in two days we lost 1,600 points in the markets. it took us a lot longer time to come back and recover. i sat there and stared defeat in the face. we can't do it now. the markets will respond to certainty. that's what congress needs to give american business and american people. certainty about taxes. certainty about spending in congress and certainty about our commitment to lower the debt. >> how do you argue that you are considering all elements of reform if in fact you're going to stick by the norquist pledge. is there anything wrong with as senator graham has said with saying i made that pledge back then but my job is to be a senator
john boehner and the senate majority leader harry reid over the weekend. and the president is confident they can work out some sort of agreement. mike emanuel on fox top story live in the d.c. newsroom tonight. mike, it looks like some republicans are changing their tunes. >> shep, republicans say they favor both major spending cuts and additional revenue from tax reform with lower tax rates. the pledge you mentioned is identified with americans for tax reforms grover norquist who has gotten many republicans to promise they won't vote to raise taxes. south carolina senator lindsey graham is pushing back saying capping deductions would help generate revenue. the top republic on the senate budget committee explained graham's position. >> he is conditioning any tax increase on fixing these programs, social security and medicare, particularly in making sure that they are sound for the future. so that's lindsey's position. and he has talked about accepting revenue to accomplish that goal. >> republicans continue saying they don't want to increase tax rates arguing that will hurt job growth.
the debt limit unless forced to by john boehner. >> and by the way, john boehner is talking about having to get the majority of a majority on tax issues. he's not going to get a majority of majority on debt raising. >> much harder on the debt ceiling than taxes. >> that's what i'm saying. i refuse to vote to raise a debt ceiling when they were trying to raise it to $5 trillion. it's something you don't do unless you get a lot of cuts on the other side. >> and it's not a game. because if you don't raise it, we saw what happened last time, you can get your debt downgraded and has real economic consequenc consequences. and that's why when people think about the fiscal cliff, we all assume that sane minds will prevail and they'll come up with some deal. there's no guarantee that sane minds will prevail. and recent history would suggest that sanity almost never prevails in washington. so you can assume it's going to be more difficult than we think. you can assume that the bush tax cuts might all go away for a short period of time. and you cannot assume they just raise the debt limit. you cann
reporting the president obama and house speaker john boehner were talking over the weekend. connell: rich edson is on the story in d.c. rich: congressional and white house staff are still meeting. they last got together two weeks ago. congressional aide say they are still waiting for another invitation from the white house for the second meeting. two sources close to negotiations confirmed that tim geithner is the point man. he has been arguing there is too little revenue from simply closing tax reductions. republicans refused that approach. >> if you can simplify this tax code and make it more flat, eliminate all kinds of loopholes and gimmicks and actually increase revenue without raising the top marginal rate which most economists say would hurt this economy if we were to do it. rich: there is some discussion in washington about increasing it for a higher rate than what the president wants. the president wants it for $250,000 a year. a threshold will not make that much of a difference. raising the threshold to a half-million would mean 7 billion was to the treasury over the next decade
as this is right now if nothing is done. liz: good luck it you. let us know if you hear from the president or john boehner. we would love to hear about it. thank you so much. >> thanks for having me. liz: national federation of independent business ceo and president, dan danner, sticking up for the little guy. david: they are the base of our economy. coming up next a look what is on the economic radar for tomorrow. liz: find out how much a cup of starbucks new premium coffee will set you back. guess what? it is their most expensive ever. ♪ david: it is time to go "off the desk." maybe over 100 feet off the ground. look at this. plans unveiled. this is the slot sill la. it is a zip line that will carry people above fremont street in las vegas, downtown las vegas. $20 ticket will get you to ride 70 feet in the air. to bucks hold out for the 30, a drop from the giant slot machine over 100 feet above the crowds. a $11 million attraction. expected to open in june. melissa: slot zilla. >>> think starbucks is little pricey already. they are unveiling a new premium coffee. most expensive cup of coffee.
with the congressional leaders, john boehner, harry reid, mitch mcconnell, and out for thanksgiving solely today are people trying to get back starting to draw the battle lines a little bit. we seem to have burned three weeks which is time is of the essence. david: i'm thinking three years ago obamacare on christmas eve, will it come down to that? >> maybe new year's eve january january 1, mandattry spending cuts kick in on the second of january. you hit on a very important point. congress only ask when there is the gamut swinging over their heads. they often do this around christmas time. it is the final train leaving the station. finishing the christmas shopping and people start to get itchy, i compare it to stockholm syndrome. people are sweating it out after a while they start to sympathize. david: i was saying is it an either or? tax rates go up or you get in and of deductions for the wealthy, and he seemed to say both. we should have a cap of $25,000 cap on abductions and marginal tax rate go up. do you think the president will hold out for that? >> harry reid this afternoon was adamant,
made over the weekend between president obama and house speaker john boehner so there hasn't been a lot of concrete progress, but there is total progress in terms of the mood that members take into this. over the weekend we heard republican senators, as you alluded to, larry, breaking the so-called grover norquist pledge against raising taxes and white house press secretary jay carney reacted positively. >> some of the comments you mentioned are welcome, and they represent what we hope is a difference in tone and approach to these problems and a recognition that a balanced approach to deficit reduction is the right approach. it's the one that's most beneficial for our economy. >> reporter: larry, what i would say is tax increases does not necessarily, despite the rhetoric on both sides, and especially from democrats, does not necessarily have to mean increases in tax rates. it is possible, if you look at the estate tax, if you look at the treatment of dividends, capital gains and carried interest and take a look at loopholes and deductions to raise a significant amount of revenue from p
, when he tried that deal with john boehner, he didn't he agree to significant cuts in medicare? >> yeah, he did. they were almost there once before. and there are different stories about who moves a goal post in that negotiation, but i would argue. if i were the president and i were going to van, i would say, look, this president has an opportunity right now to shape the future of american budgets, the blueprint for the american economy, and for american spending priorities for a decade to come. in this particular deal. and so if i were the president, i would say, look, it's not going to be perfect, but we really do have an opportunity here, and i have an opportunity as president of the united states to lead this country into fiscal solvency again. if each side -- we can't get what's perfect. >> but let me speak up for van. >> hold on a second, i want ross to wrap it up. >> well, i was going to say, i think i disagree completely with van on the policy, i think over the long run, if you look at the growth rate in medicare and the fact that every year you don't change social security, it
public pressure on republicans to support his plan. how speaker john boehner is pushing back. today his office released a statement saying the target of the president's rally should be the congressional democrats who want to raise tax rates on small businesses rather than cut spending. the white house in the meantime defends the public campaign and told chuck todd within the last hour it's doing all it can to strike a deal as soon as possible. >> isn't everybody just killing time until the deadline comes? >> no. it doesn't seem like killing time to me, chuck. >> it's the final week and the jet fumes and people get out of school and people will hammer it out? >> he has not waited for people to start smelling the jet fuels at a national airport. he's active ly put forward a plan. >> another issue, how to get to the 218 votes needed to get a deal through the house if both parties are claiming a mandate. here's the challenge aaccording to our first read team. take a look. 205 house republican incumbents ran for re-election. 93% of them won. what's more, 117 of them won by getting at least 6
on the phone with senate majority leader harry reid and john boehner over the weekend. and besides carney says, the president has to talk directly to the american people. >> it is vitally important that ordinary americans actively engage in this debate because the outcome of these negotiations and the hopeful product of these negotiations are the product that we hope emerges from these negotiations will profoundly affect their lives. >> so is the president, the missing ingredient to really nailing down a fiscal cliff deal? could he end the drama right now if he stayed put in washington and held a series of face-to-face meetings with reid, mcconnell, boehner, and pelosi instead of his planned meetings this week with small business owners, business leaders and middle class americans, not to mention a trip scheduled for friday to pennsylvania. a state he won by five points in the election, to sell american voters on a tax plan he has very loudly and clearly said he's already sold them on. mark warner is a member of the senate's bipartisan gang of eight. they've been working to develop a deficit r

, the president and speaker boehner did talk on the phone on saturday. john harwood live in washington with the latest. john? >> carl, you know, the president and the speaker had a conversation over the weekend. there haven't been too many meetings at the staff level or the principals level. but there has been something that changed about the atmosphere post election. and what you've seen is more and more republicans coming out and being willing to say out loud they're willing to raise taxes of some kind. whether or not it's tax rates or tax revenue in a way they weren't willing to do in 2011 when john boehner and the president were negotiating an attempted grand bargain then. we saw one on the sunday shows over the weekend, that was lindsey graham of south carolina and then bob corker of tennessee. let's take a listen to their comments. >> i agree we shouldn't raise rates, but i think grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions and buy down debt. what do you do with the money? -- i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country only if democrats wi
the opposite of the way they've negotiated inside with john boehner and others on past deals. >> yeah, the president feels he has very strong cards here and one of the strategies of the white house is that if we go over the cliff, if all those tax cuts are allowed to expire, the president has real ways to extract pain from the republicans. polls already show people are more likely to blame republicans and here's something very important. republican leaders know that. joe scarborough writes on politico right now that when eric cantor, the number two house republican was there on your set, that he noticed a different tone from him and seeing more and more signs of that as the week goes along, the republican leaders recognize that the president has an inaugural address, a state of the union address and a lot of high-profile ways to pin the blame on them and so today we have this remarkable movement position by tom cole, one of the most politically savvy republicans who told their whip team that they would be better off to cave, that they would be better off to give what he calls the earl

. they're use it as leverage. john boehner said as much to the president. people say the debt ceiling thing is an albatross. most countries don't have a debt limit. they deal with it in a different way. the debt ceiling debate which started this issue of congress not being able to make decisions on financial matters will come to a sometime between december 31st and february 1st. that is another set of things we have to deal with if they get the fiscal cliff dealt with. >> 35 days, we're counting them and going to see if we can get anything done. thank you. >>> what we're also working on this hour -- egyptian president mohamed morsi's power grab is challenged. but will it be enough to preserve democracy? >>> and medical marijuana a 7-year-old patient in oregon is taking the drug. is it right treatment for kids with cancer? dr. sanjay gupta reports. >>> plus -- scott kelly i didn't cal twin brother of nasa astronaut mark kelley, the husband of former congresswoman gabrielle giffords, takes on a historic mission. he heads to space for a year. we'll take a look at what it will be like liv
: there was a follow-up phone call with house speaker john boehner, but a much different approach this week. the president's calendar is packed with sales pitches to the public, which he hopes will strengthen his hand in negotiations with republicans. on monday a white house report on the impact of middle class tax cuts on the economy. tuesday, a meeting with small business owners. wednesday, meetings with middle class americans and ceos from some of the country's biggest companies. and friday, a road trip to a pennsylvania manufacturing plant. this approach did not escape the attention of senate minority leader mitch mcconnell who questioned the president's leadership on these fiscal challenges. >> in other words instead of sitting down with lawmakers of both parties and working out an agreement, he's back on the campaign trail presumably with the same old talking points that we're all quite familiar with. >> reporter: but white house spokesman jay carney insisted the president is fully engaged in getting an agreement while taking his case to the public. >> so to suggest that we should now
